Dell Dell Optiplex 740 Minitower Desktop Computer (Athlon 64 3800+ 2.40GHz/80GB/512MB)

 

Dell offers the OptiPlex 740, a system from its business desktops line, in minitower, desktop (horizontal orientation), and ultracompact versions. The inexpensively configured minitower we tested ($1024 as of 05/09/2007) had an inoffensive design,...

Innovative case design ; Very quiet

Integrated graphics models have VGA only ; Some parts could be expensive to replace

Superb internal design makes this business system ultraquiet and very easy to work on. Same-day on-site service is optional.
